2024 Ross County dog and kennel licenses now available

CHILLICOTHE — Ross County Auditor Jeff Lehner recently announced that 2024 dog & kennel licenses are available for purchase at the Auditor's office, online and at various vendors' locations throughout Ross County.

"We in the Auditor's office are once again happy to partner with the Ross County Humane Society and small businesses throughout the County to make licenses easily available for residents," Lehner said.

Owners will be charged $10 per dog license and $50 per kennel license. Ohio law requires individuals who "own, keep or harbor" a dog aged three months or more to obtain a dog license annually.

The deadline for purchasing 2024 licenses is January 31, 2024, after which time state-mandated penalties will be assessed for late registration of dogs & kennels. Proceeds help to fund the operations of the Ross County Humane Society.

Dog owners can purchase a license online or at the following locations:

  • Garman Feed & Supply, 3540 OH-28 South Salem
